New tools to manage the sport

Connecting with Youth - Summer Camp in Bulgaria

The first youth camp ever organised for young riders from the Balkan region featuring 19 dedicated riders from 5 countries: Bulgaria, Macedonia, Romania, Serbia & Turkey.

"The level of development in equestrian sport in Bulgaria and the Balkans over recent years demonstrates the true dedication of a highly dynamic and professional Federation to play a keen role in the growth of equestrian sport. The organisation of the FEI World Jumping and Dressage Challenges, FEI Courses for Coaches and camps such as these give me every confidence that equestrian sport is in safe hands here. The resulting 83% increase in international events in Bulgaria over the last 5 years only serves to reward the hard work of all those involved."
Ingmar De Vos, FEI President
